Top tips on getting dental veneers in Thailand

Published

 on 

Have you finally made your mind and decided to let Thai dentists work their magic on your teeth? Veneers can repair chipped, stained, and cracked teeth. They can really improve the look of your teeth and give you the perfect smile. However, they can be pretty expensive. That’s why a lot of people opt to go to Thailand to cut the costs without having to sacrifice quality.

Getting veneers in a foreign country is not something to be taken lightly. Before you go ahead and begin your journey of transforming your teeth in the Land of Smiles, there are a few things you need to consider. Below, we’ve compiled five tips to help you get the safest and the best veneers in Thailand.

1. Pick the right dentist

Veneer is a cosmetic dental treatment, but it’s still serious work. The procedure is permanent, and it will affect the overall appearance of your face and mouth. Therefore, it’s crucial to pick an experienced dentist who won’t only improve the look of your teeth but is also genuinely concerned about the health and function of your teeth. Besides the dentist’s skills and experience, it’s also important to see if you like their style and approach. Before you make your decision, ask the dentist or the dental clinic if you can see before and after images of their work to ensure you like their style.

Do your research so you can verify the quality of veneers provided by the dentist. Make sure to take a look at online reviews, find a gallery of before and after images, and check the dentist’s background and certification. If possible, set up an online appointment with the dentist. If they pressure you to make a quick decision, hard sell, and don’t provide much information, then it’s better to find another dentist.

2. Look for companies specialising in medical tourism

When it comes to dental tourism, one of the first issues people have is finding and connecting to reputable dental clinics in Thailand. It can be challenging to find accredited clinics and certified dentists in a foreign country. However, you can easily solve this problem by working with a medical tourism company like MyMediTravel. They can help you find and set up an appointment with the best dentist for veneers in Thailand. By using their service, you can be sure to receive expert care and save your time and money.

3. Understand how veneer is performed in Thailand

To help you prepare for your veneer procedure and keep your expectations realistic, it’s important to understand how it is performed in Thailand. There are two common types of veneers in Thailand: porcelain and composite resin. Find out the pros and cons of both types and decide which one you want to have. Once you understand everything and decide on which type you want, you can start hunting down the best dentist for your specific type of veneer in Thailand.

Understanding how veneer is performed in Thailand will also help you plan your entire trip. Find out how many appointments are required for the dentist to finish the procedure. Some dentists in Thailand order custom-made veneers from dental labs, so you may need to visit the dentist at least two to three times. However, others may be able to finish it in a day. You can use this information to plan your dental trip itinerary.

4. Don’t ask for the whitest and brightest colour

It might be tempting to get the paperwhite, symmetrical, and perfectly smooth veneers. However, teeth naturally have a yellowish/greyish white colour, and they have tiny grooves and bumps. Therefore, it may look unnatural to go for the whitest and brightest veneers. In order to get the most natural result, choose the right colour that matches your skin tone and the rest of your teeth. In most cases, your dentist will test the colour using temporary veneers, so you can have an idea of what the final product will look like.

5. Learn about the aftercare and possible side effects

Be sure to learn about veneer aftercare and how the aftercare will be coordinated. Knowing how to take care of your veneer will help you recover faster, prevent side effects, and ensure that you get the best possible results. It’s also important that you understand the possible side effects and complications that could arise from your veneer procedure.
